usb cable modem

can anyone point me to any guides to setting up a cable usb modem, i`m having alot of trouble trying to set it up manually even though most distro`s automatically set it up, so i know it works fine with linux.
its just a matter of setting it up in arch manually  :cry:

its a webstar usb modem and i noticed in mandrake it works with a "cdcether" driver.

any help would be much appreciated  smile

i had to compile the kernel with the proper usb support and modify the rc.conf, and it works perfect.

I installed the Arch Linux using the Live CD but it did not have the driver orinoco_pci.

If you are using AL-AMLUG Live CD's kernel, you can find the module in:
/lib/modules/2.4.22-hwd.w4l/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/orinoco_pci.o

Try to load the module:
# modprobe orinoco_pci

Re: usb cable modem

Sorry I forgot, ver. 0.2.1 use 2.4.20-hwd.w4l. You are right, it doesn't have orinoco_pci.o but orinoco.o
In few days ver. 0.3 is ready with kernel 2.4.22.
